A month of posting, karakuri, and space exploration
Five-ish things that I loved this week.
I think this deserves a celebration. 🎉🎉🎉
I can't say that any of these posts have gotten any sort of traction, but these are my favorites that I've written so far:
- Streaking into the new year
- Making a static word of the day site with Google AI Studio and GitHub Actions
- Pendulums and sine waves in P5.js
I feel like I post a Colossal link every week, but I can't help it that they're constantly posting amazing new art. This week features some beautiful glass ammonite sculptures from Kelly O'Dell.
The galleries on her website are absolutely stunning.
I recently stumbled upon this channel that uses 3d printed clockwork parts to create amazing mechanized sculptures. It's all in Japanese, but even though I don't understand the explanations, it's very easy to follow along as they show their step-by-step process of creating these art pieces.
Their website karakurist.jp is also fully in Japanese but has some great animated explanations of the different mechanisms that are used in their various projects.
I've been subscribed to The Orbital Index for a while, but I've never really looked at their website. It's an absolutely beautiful site, with well-formatted archives. They even have an RSS feed! If you're into space exploration, and want to keep up with the latest news, I highly recommend subscribing to their newsletter either via email or RSS.
A very active account on Bluesky that remembers foods introduced by brand names and chain restaurants, and often explains why they were later discontinued. Lots of gimmick foods that will make you feel some real nostalgia.
Some of the posts don't even involve food. Enjoy the most Cincinnati post I've ever seen:
